Yes. Make sure you get the binary which matches your perl version.
For 5.005, the Activestate site. For 5.003/5.004, Aldo Calpini's site. Works
on Win95, Win98 and NT.

Module is "Win32::API". "Win32API" is a CPAN Namespace.

Nope. I tried. Very hard. It does not load 16bit libraries.
Or do I miss something?

Thunking hell ;-}

It is possible but I fear that you might have to create your own 32 bit stub
DLL that will then call the 16 Bit one but that is way off topic for this
group. It will also require a 32bit C compiler.  You will get more info on
this from a MS-Windows programming group (or its FAQ).

I refer the honorable gentleman to my previous posting on the subject,
archived at dejanews.com. A search on "perl 16-bit dll" will present it.
It points to several relevant sources of information. Now, for a question
of my own -- could someone please suggest which FAQ would be the most
appropriate to which to submit this answer?

Thanks...
